Présentation de l'éditeur

Charcoal Foundry, the first book in the "Metal Working Shop From Scrap Series", gives you plans for building a metal melting furnace and instructions on basic pattern making and molding. All the information needed to set up a foundry in your work shop can be found in this book. Simply stated, if you can build a sand castle or make a mud pie, you can make a sand mold to produce castings for your metal shop projects.

The main ingredient in these projects is scrap aluminum and pot metal. The only tools you need to get started are ordinary home shop hand tools, many of which are probably already in your possession. Much of the remainder is found as salvage or cast-off and little expense need be involved.

The charcoal foundry is simple to build and operate and the initial cost is so low that it can be in the reach of nearly anyone. And the fundamentals of pattern-making and molding are easily understood and mastered.

Once you have built the charcoal foundry and the metal lathe in book 2, there is little beyond your reach by way of shop equipment. Build as large or small as you wish and you are your own parts supply company. If you already have some machine shop equipment, you will find that adding a foundry to your shop greatly expands your capacity. Being able to produce your own castings for accessories and equipment is a great advantage. Design your own, make a copy or follow a plan. It's easy when you're in control and can produce your own castings.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun start to sand casting 31 mai 2001
Par Joseph C. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
David Gingery's charcoal foundry book is a fun place to start thinking about sand casting of metals. This book on the charcoal foundry is more like a "letter from a friend" describing his experience with metal casting. It is *not* a reference-material textbook on industrial foundries. Instead, it's a fun and accessible introduction to doing small "hobbyist" or "prototype" sandcasting.
His book is informative and entertaining, but keep in mind that he is not an expert -- he says so himself in the preface of his book -- if you do decide to set up a foundry at home, do additional research!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent!If metal-work interests you, buy the WHOLE series. 23 mai 1999
Par John Robinson - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is the first in a series of seven. I bought all seven and will never lend them out; I value them too highly. The author, in a very careful and common-sense fashion, takes the reader through the whole process of small-project metal casting. In later volumes, the reader is shown how to build a lathe, a shaper, a divider, and so on. Throughout the series, the emphasis is on safety, practicality and affordability. You REALLY CAN build your own metal-working shop from the ground up. If you are fascinated by the fabricating arts, don't delay. Lay out the money and buy the whole set. I did and am very, very satisfied. These books are really inspiring and empowering. Do it now.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Gingery Charcoal-Fired Furnace 19 janvier 2000
Par Jean-Philippe Senart - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a great book, and the best that I have found so far on getting started in foundrywork.
It covers all of the essentials, and guides you step-by-step through the process of building your charcoal-fired furnace. No prior experience in any form of metalworking or handicrafts is required, although some carpentry experience is rather useful. I am a full-time welding and machining student, and this(and Dave's other books in this series), are literally a dream come true.
If you enjoy tinkering with stuff, and dream about being a machinist/foundryman/all-around do-it-yourselfer, then you owe it to yourself to get this book, and the others in the series.
Have fun!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Even easier than he makes it seem 7 janvier 2004
Par David Rysdam - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is Book 1 of a seven book series. I've only completed this one so far and it was even easier than I thought it would be. Gingery is obviously a hands-on type person and, while very knowledgeable, not very clear in some of his instructions and in the overall structure of the book. For instance, it took me two tries to fire the lid of my furnace because the difference between "curing" and "vitrifying" were not made sufficiently clear (fortunately it was just a matter of crumbling the first try up and adding more water). He also talks several times about "hair dryer hoses" and it took me a couple weeks to realize he was talking about an obsolete type of dryer that was available when he first wrote the book, back in the early 80s.
That said, this is not necessarily all bad. By poring over the whole book again and again, trying things out, going back to the book and doing research elsewhere, I learned a lot more than if he'd handed it all to me on a platter. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to try "something different" that was also cheap. It's really not hard to do--a friend could help you get it all done in a weekend. The only real difficulty is getting one's mind around new concepts and obtaining items you may never have even known existed before.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Almost perfect book for beginner 9 novembre 2002
Par Trevor Jordan Heald - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a wonderful book that is the first in the "Build a Metal Working Shop From Scrap" series. It goes over basic foundry processes and materials and finally the building and operation of a Charcoal fired furnace for melting aluminum. I built a furnace out of a garbage can from this book, but I haven't fired it yet. Unfortunately, the charcoal burns with a lot of smoke and there are a lot of ashes left over when you are done. Even with the disadvantages of the dirtyness, it is easier to work with than gas.
